What is Inti Raymi?

Inti Raymi is a festival celebrated in Cusco on June 24. It is an ancient celebration that the Incas used to do in honor of the Sun God, Inti. Today, the celebration mixes Catholic and Andean traditions, and a theatrical representation of the ceremony is performed in the Sacsayhuaman fortress.

The celebration includes music, dances and offerings to the Pachamama (mother earth) and the sun, as well as the presentation of ritual sacrifices. The ceremony is a mixture of Inca and Catholic traditions, and is presided over by an actor who represents the Inca and makes offerings to the sun and the earth.

Inti Raymi is an opportunity to experience the rich culture and heritage of Peru’s Andean peoples, and is a unique experience for those looking to immerse themselves in the history and tradition of the region.

How long does Inti Raymi last?

The Inti Raymi is a festivity that lasts approximately all day. The main ceremony takes place in the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, on the outskirts of the city of Cusco, and lasts about four hours, from 9 am to 1 pm. However, the celebration of Inti Raymi extends throughout the day with various activities in different parts of the city of Cusco.

In the morning, there is a procession of participants dressed in traditional costumes, from the temple of Qoricancha to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco. After the ceremony in Sacsayhuaman, there is a procession back to Cusco, where an additional celebration is held in the Plaza de Armas, with music and traditional dances.

How far in advance should I plan my Inti Raymi Tour?

If you are interested in attending Inti Raymi, it is recommended that you plan your tour well in advance. The festival is celebrated every year on June 24, so it is recommended that you start looking for information about tours and lodging at least 4 months in advance, especially if you plan to travel during high season.

You should also keep in mind that, during the festival, prices for accommodation and transportation may increase considerably, and that tickets for the main events may sell out quickly.
